You don’t have to go crazy, but spending a few minutes searching for an online coupon code, using an offer received in the mail, or asking a sales clerk or checkout person if there are any discounts you are eligible for, could save you some money. If it takes too long to find an active code, or the process to get the discount is onerous, it may not be worth the aggravation, but a few seconds to save real dollars? Definitely worth it!
If you use a shopping cart, put it in the cart corral (at a minimum) after loading your purchases in your car instead of just leaving the cart to roll around the parking lot. Doing so is courteous to the store employees and fellow shoppers. Don’t be the one who isn’t respectful!
Say ‘bless you,’ or the equivalent, after someone sneezes. Even in a movie theatre. Even during a meeting. Even during a wedding ceremony. Or during a funeral. It is good manners, and shows polite understanding toward the person who sneezed.
Happy, sad, hilarious, touching, embarrassing…share your memories with others. Tell your story. Keep your soul alive by connecting with others.
Keep staples in your pantry & fridge/freezer like peanut butter, frozen veggies, jarred or canned goods, and spices, condiments, and oils. That way you can always throw together something to eat.
The Smithsonian museums are actually many museums in Washington DC. If you have the opportunity, you should spend some time exploring their collections. They are free to visit and offer a wide range of artifacts to view.
Instead of using a machine, use a French press to make your morning coffee. It is better for the environment, cheaper, and often tastier.
What’s the rush? Speeding increases your risk for an accident. Speeding puts you at risk of being pulled over and issued a ticket. Both of those will cost you time and money. Be smart and don’t speed.
Include artwork in your life. You can display it in your home. You can display it on your screen. You can add bumper stickers to your car. Add art to your workstation. Display artwork throughout the environments where you live your life.
Take advantage of free shipping & returns offers from online stores. That is a great way to compare items in different sizes, colors, and even from different stores. Make sure you make any returns before the time limit is up though, otherwise you could get stuck with something you don’t want; a waste of space and money.
